Rated 5 out of 5 by ruthie13 The view is spectacular!
The staff & the hotel appearance and cleaniness is very good indeed. The staff continue to accomodate my needs. Especially overlooking the narrows! The food is fabulous, the bed is very comfortable & overall I love staying at the Sheraton Hotel!

The hotel staff and associates went well beyond their call of duty... we were at the hotel with a power outage from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m....
Under the most challenging of circumstances... I was still a VIP!
Thanks so much

Rated 5 out of 5 by John The dining experience was delightful
We especially enjoyed the inviting atmosphere, friendly service, and excellent dishes of the bivver bar and restaurant. This will always be our hotel and dining experience of choice when we visit St. John's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Navi76 Needs Updating & Added Qualiry Expected
Positive - Nice downtown location, Excellent lobby and central events area, bed was very comfy and Starbucks coffee in room was great.
Negative - Breakfast was atrocious! Terrible thin dry Belgian waffle so tried the expensive buffet the next day....they used reconstituted eggs, minimal selection, dollerstore style buffet warmers that are difficult to open/close,flimsy, etc. Ate elsewhere for remainder of stay.
---Room felt old, no fridge although bed was new and very comfy, furniture very worn extremely scuffed.
----Out of 5 nights, only got my coffee or sugar/creamer supplies refilled half that, even after leaving a note to please refill.
---Two burnt out lightbulbs in room and "replace battery" flashed on temperature control the entire stay. It's like the minimum was done, no thoroughness.
--They put a new pool in, but it is all glass so you are on display in the aquarium....
---Main entrance revolving door is too small to be useful. Bags get jammed, everyone ends up using narrow side doors.
For what I pay and expect of the Sheraton, I expect more than received at this hotel in St. John's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gk81 Great location, service can be improved
Stayed here for three nights in July 2012. Trip was off to a bad start when the manager at the front desk told me she would have to charge me $30 because we had a couple staying with us for the first night (they had their own room for the next two nights). I was in shock because I had not been told of this charge on the phone when I made the reservation. The agent told me I would have been told that, essentially calling me a liar and doing nothing to try and rectify the fact that I was an extremely unhappy customer. The next day we missed the maid so we called to request that our room be cleaned. Upon our return several hours later, this had not been done and I had to request it a second time. My husband had to dry off with a hand towel because, despite paying EXTRA to have four people in the room, they only gave us three towels.
The location is fabulous and the rooms are nice. I was just extremely disappointed with they way I was treated, as well as the fact that the hotel did absolutely nothing to try and ensure I was a satisfied customer, especially in consideration of how much you pay to stay here.

The hotel was top notch, wonderful rooms and facilities. The people went out of their way to make your stay the best it could be. Don't stay nowhere else when in St. Johns B'y.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BizTraveller12345 Not a business hotel - noisy!!
I stayed for a conference mid-week to the weekend (conference offsite). I had no sleep due to the extreme party nature of the clientele who were extremely loud until 4:30am each night. There was no SPG floor apparently (or it wasn't offered) and the staff I complained to about the noise did nothing. I had to check out very early on my final night (at 3:30am for an early flight) and the hallway was littered with ice trailing to the "party room" and he noise level from the adjacent room was such that I had no need to even worry about me making noise at that early hour. I'd never stay here again even with no other SPG option. And I travel frequently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ashley11 Loved it here
We stayed from August 17-19 while in St. John's. When we arrived we got in line to be checked in and it was painfully slow until another staff member came out to help. Our room was facing the city but the view in a hotel room is not the most important thing since I did not travel here to stare out the window. The bed and pillows were wonderful and everything was spotless. The room service card that was left in the room for us to fill out for breakfast in the morning was filled out the second night and put on the doorknob by 3 am as instructed and was taken by morning so we would receive our order by 10:00-10:15 am. This did not happen. The card states that if you do not receive your order in 30 minutes it will be complimentary, so we waited until 10:50 and decided to call to find out where our breakfast was. Apparently they did not get our card which was taken off our door, so I asked the front desk staff about it and we were given two vouchers for the breakfast buffet in the restaurant located in the hotel. This was appreciated considering we just waited almost an hour for a breakfast that was never coming. Samantha was the staff member that helped us with this problem and she is wonderful. The restaurant and the bar in this hotel is great but when the bar is busy like it was Friday night it is a bit of a wait. Parking at this hotel is free and can be a nightmare when returning to hotel when there is a event going on in their area for weddings and such things. But most of the other times there are spaces available. The pool is also lovely and the work out area is being renovated but they have machines set up in a room but I did not go there so I cannot comment on that. Over all this hotel was great, the staff are great and the gift shop is very nice with a wonderful lady that runs that. Although like most other places I've stayed, every time someone lets their door shut you can hear it as plain as day. We also heard the noise in the hallways when people would walk by talking like they were out in the street. Our next trip to St. John's will be in the next few months and this hotel will be a top choice since it was very clean and comfortable and in a great location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilyn This hotel is like coming home
Whenever I visit St. John's I stay at the Sheraton on Duckworth. My business trips are usually 2-3 days, and being away from home is hard, but knowing I have the friendly staff and the luxurious rooms at the Sheraton to look forward to, makes it so much easier. The 'biffer' is also a great place to relax after a hard day at the office, with a nice glass of merlot, and their fabulous seafood chowder and mini desserts. It is a nice ending to the day. The staff in the biffer are wonderful, especially the two ladies who've worked there for years, always so welcoming and friendly. I love it. Marilyn

Rated 3 out of 5 by Daloris If not for the view we would have gone to another hotel
While the view of the Narrows and Signal Hill - along with room service dinner - was wonderful, I was tremendously disappointed in the cleanliness of the room and the inconsistencies in the in-room items. The night we arrived I cleaned the toilet myself before using it. Regarding in-room beverages it was explained there was a shortage of regular coffee, but when some did finally appear (1 of 4 days), there was only one packet of sugar and no creamer/whitener. Two days there was bottled water left, two days there was not - we never knew what to expect. And to top it all off, starting at 11 pm one night we had two dogs in the adjacent room barking at us. Not what one would expect from a hotel of this caliber or a room of that price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bravestar2010 The room and bedding we had was very dirty..
When we got there the staff was great at the front desk. When we recieved our key, my wife had to go down stairs three times before we could get in our room. The first two keys would not open the door. So the third time we were given a different room on the third floor..312...The room was very unsatisfactory with regards to clean..The bedding was not fit to sleep in and there was mould in the top corner of the bathroom. We left after several minutes in the room and went downtown St. Johns, just to try and have a good night with our two kids. When we got back my two kids went swimming and I went to the bar downstairs. At about 9:30 we went back to the room and took all the sheets off the and went to sleep..

Oppidan restaurant had amazing food and service. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the area and provided us with lovely taste surprises before our main course was served. The dinner was prepared to absolute perfection by Chef Roary. It was a fantastic dining experience!

Stayed two nights at the Sheraton Newfoundland in June for business. I quite enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to other travellers (either for business or leisure).
Good location for both the centre of the city and the airport.
Decor and furniture are starting to show their age.
Food in the lounge wasn't all that good. I did not dine at the restaurant.
Overall, a very comfortable hotel to stay at in St John's with excellent staff. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Twexploits Disappointment start to finish
Upon arrival, I was told my credit card was declined, in front of a lobby full of patrons. I used my husbands card called my credit company from the room and was told reception entered the expiry date incorrectly -twice - and that my card was in good standing. The hotel was quite noisy, but it was a busy weekend in the city, no problem there. I ran a marathon and was looking forward to a swim and a soak in the morning, but, again, the facilities were closed. Embarrassment and disappointment for nearly $200? I will try an alternate hotel for my next stay in he city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JSLA Hit or Miss on sleeping
I look foward and like to stay at this hotel. The people are very professional and friendly. Unfortunately, this time round I was unable to secure a King bed even though I had requested one. In other words, the staff did not meet my needs to securing a King bed. And the comfort of the double bed is nothing compared to the King. I did not sleep that well on the double bed.
I slept like a King in previous stays though on the King beds at the hotel!
The hotel is close to a great coffee house.
I would go back to the hotel! Hopefully better luck nex time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Unconnected Insufficient Internet
The room was comfortable, the good bed and a nice view - all great things. Unfortunately, if you are on the lower floors (1 in particular) you will get the chance to look at the view all night because the road noise will keep you awake. If you need to connect to the internet bring a cable for hard wire connection because you will not be able to depend on the wireless - if you get a signal you can loose it at any time. I rate the room comfort as unsatisfactory because of the internet - sitting on the floor by the door trying to work is not comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travel4Work2014 Very nice rooms, but very dry
I really liked the room I had and the people are very nice and friendly (as all Newfoundlanders) but I was often awaken in the middle of the night as my mouth and throat were too dry. The AC somehow sucks the air dry and it made sleeping difficult (at least for me).
If you suffer from this, please keep that in mind when staying at this hotel. There are some portable humidifier that could be helpfull.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leeann68 Great stay
My sister and I were in St John's for a wedding and this hotel was recommended. The hotel was clean and well kept with the exception of the carpet in our room. It looked dirty and in some need of some TLC. The beds and linens were comfortable The bathroom was clean and the shower had a great shower head and excellent water pressure. We had breakfast at the restaurant on two mornings and it was excellent The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't swim in the pool but we checked it out and it looked nice, clean and well maintained .The hotel is in a good location within walking distance to shopping and great little restaurants on Water street. While I didn't find the hotel a high end sheraton, it was a clean, spacious, well,kept. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting St John's
